Jan 10 Feed Update: one week left and seats are going fast

I believe I’m caught up on payments. If you wanted to arrange to avoid PayPal and emailed us, you should have heard from me. If you heard from Dave and not me (specifically, the “you’re on the alternate payment list” email) drop me a line. I don’t want anyone to be left off.

That becomes important because in a couple of days since announcing the details we’re just shy of half full. In fact I will bet that when I process the next batch tomorrow afternoon we’ll get to two-thirds. Dave’s been skeptical about whether we can fill a room this size, but I have faith.

This is going to be a barn-burner. I’m so excited.

Dave’s promotional post follows

We told you hold the date – now we tell you why. On Saturday, January 10th, we’re hosting the latest USSM/LL event. The guests for the afternoon are Mariners Asst. GM Tony Blengino and Mariners scouting director Tom McNamara. These are the two guys that Zduriencik brought over from Milwaukee – Blengino is the guy behind the Department of Baseball Research that is being established and the one pushing the organization into the 21st century of baseball analysis. McNamara is the top scout in the organization, and will be running the amateur draft this summer. They’re both going to be a lot of fun to talk to.

The event is at the downtown Seattle Central Library from 1:30 to 5:30 on Saturday, January 10th. We won’t be providing food, so we’ve lowered the price to $10, which just goes to defray the costs of the room rental. We’re trying to improve the whole registration/payment process for these things, so if you want to attend, click on the button below and donate $10.

Do not click the anonymous button, as we need your name to show up on the list of donaters -that will be the list we use at the door to let people in. If you’re paying for multiple people, send an email to the USSM account with the names of the people you’re bringing so that we can make sure everyone is on the list. And if you’re totally anti-paypal, send us an email too and we’ll work something out.

But, yea, January 10th, four hours of baseball talk with Derek, the LL gang, and two of the big wigs in the M’s new front office. It’s going to be a lot of fun, so I encourage you guys to go.

    Um, you’ve been quoted in the New York Times or whatever the #$%$ it was. King Felix is taking your stuff seriously. The M’s beat writers engage your dialogue. Yeah, you can fill a room of “this size.” Um, people, sign up now or forever hold your peace. (Remember how surprised we all were when the “surprise/mystery guest” –Bill Bavasis — began striding down the hall towards us? No one who is serious about the M’s wants to miss this. And I’m traveling through four counties — Clallam, Jefferson, Kitsap and King — plus crossing Puget Sound to get there.)
